    Released: 18th Feb 2022


the second compilation of rockabilly tunes from the catalogs of M‐G‐M Records and its sub‐labels Cub and Metro.

Dewey Phillips (1926 ‐ 1968), a humorous Dee Jay from Memphis, who regularly introduced white and black musicians in his broadcasts since 1949, wrote Rock & Roll history when he played Elvis Presley's first single on the radio in July 1954. From his verbal signature 'That'll Flat Git It!’, Bear Family Records® borrowed in 1992 the title of our long‐running label‐by‐label rockabilly series featuring the record company's best rocking recordings! VARIOUS ARTISTS That’ll Flat Git It! Vol. 40 Release date: February 04, 2022 LABEL: Bear Family Records CATALOG #: BCD17652 FORMAT: CD (Digipak) with booklet PRICE: £ 9.99 GENRE: VINTAGE ROCKABILLY, ROCK’N’ROLL BARCODE: 5397102176524 The fortieth issue is dedicated to the catalogs of M‐G‐M Records and its two sub‐labels, Cub and Metro ‐ we first featured rockabilly and rock' n' roll on M‐G‐M before the turn of the millennium. With BCD 15789 'That'll Flat Git It! Vol. 7' there is no overlapping. M‐G‐M Records was founded in 1946 by film production company Metro Goldwyn Mayer as a record label to release soundtracks, but was open to a wide variety of musical genres from the beginning. M‐G‐M jumped into rockabilly when that genre of music literally exploded in the mid‐50s! For our recent visit to M‐G‐M, we've chosen better‐known rockers like Buck Griffin, Marvin Rainwater and Andy Starr alongside less popular performers like Gary Walker, George McCormick (part of the country duo George & Earl), Ricky Scott, Rita Faye, Bob Riley and Don Ruby, a.o. Before rockabilly was the order of the day, Don Gibson and Arthur 'Guitar Boogie' Smith each recorded two furiously cracking country rockers, which we also present here. Chicago music writer Bill Dahl has written the extensive liner notes with many biographical details and interview excerpts, and the recordings have been compiled from the best sources, often from our own archives. The lavishly illustrated booklet features some little‐ known images ‐ another milestone in our groundbreaking label documentation on the history of rockabilly!
